We’re building worship and production teams this Fall to support our ongoing online media ministry.  We especially need volunteers on the production staff to share the load during the live service.  Since the onset of Covid19 we have added equipment, software and a new streaming partner.  With those additions the streaming production process has evolved, and stabilized.  At this point we can train new volunteers who are interested in using these technologies to reach an online audience.  If you are interested in mixing sound for broadcast, running a video switch, managing online titles and scene changes, or simply running the sound board for the sanctuary, contact Mark Tyler  HERE.
Want to go hiking and fishing during the day and sit around the campfire at night with friends?  How about joining in for a SCC campout?!  If you would be interested in camping the weekend of July 30 - August 1, 2021, please call the church to get in contact with the organizers.   If sitting round the campfire with friends sounds like fun,  but you don’t even like to say the “C” word, we are planning to camp where there are nearby cabins with flush toilets, hot showers, and electricity for your curling iron.  Those of you in that category, please also contact the church office at 541-549-1201 or  We’d like to begin to gauge interest and how much room we’d need to accommodate everyone’s rigs/tents.
